“This was spe­cial. I was dis­ap­pointed that a few days be­fore (the Pro­vin­cial Bar­bar­ians v Lions game) the New Zealand Her­ald in­sin­u­ated that I’d be tar­get­ing my own son. It was a re­ally proud mo­ment for us, for fa­ther and son to have played against the Lions. I went up to him 30 min­utes be­fore kick-off, gave him a hug and just said ‘Play well’. And he did play well.

“Trudi and Gabby were Team Bryn that night but the next day they put their Lions kit on!

“He wants to play Su­per Rugby and hopes to se­cure a con­tract in the next 12 months. If not, there’s the po­ten­tial to look over­seas. I think he’d make a good coach one day, too; we have good de­bates.”
